    Shower isolator

    Thanks for the replies... I used a 45A switch for the isolator as recommended in the user manual for the shower. I couldn't see any discolouration on the cables - it all looked pretty good to me. The consumer unit was only fitted a few months ago so I'll give the electrician a call.

    Shower isolator

    Hello everyone, A couple of days ago my Wickes Aquatronic electric shower's neon light went out, as did the neon on the isolator switch. Having done a bit of research online I bought and fitted a new isolator switch today. The neon on both the shower and switch came on and I had a shower...

    Strange drain in front garden / drive

    rjm2k : There definitely wasn't a garage door there at any point. Burnerman : Yes it seems that way. The drive slopes down towards my house, so quite a bit of water flows down that way at times. I'm planning to dig up most of the concrete and put in a lawn so there should be less runoff...

    Strange drain in front garden / drive

    Hi all, Got this little drain in our front drive. It's blocked and just filling up with water when it rains. Been trying to clear it with drain rods but seem to have hit a hard surface at the bottom. The hole is vertical and appears to be about 1m deep. Any ideas if this is normal? Seems...

    Mystery object sticking out of wall

    Thanks for the ID! Are they from gas lighting do you think? They're in three of the bedrooms... :D So are they best left alone or is there a sensible way of getting rid of them? Of course there's always the option of sticking a picture over the top... it worked on Shawshank Redemption

    Mystery object sticking out of wall

    After a bit of scraping about (it's been wallpapered over and painted several times). It seems to have a round metal base.

    Mystery object sticking out of wall

    Thanks for the replies... Gave one a poke with a screwdriver and they are square in shape and metal. Two of them are on walls that connect to the next door neighbour's house and one is to the right of a window facing out to the street.

    Mystery object sticking out of wall

    Hello folks, Just moved in to a 1930s terraced house and starting to make a few changes. We noticed some odd looking things sticking out of the interior walls. Any ideas what these are? There are three of them, all upstairs. They seem to be metal... some kind of wall tie perhaps...
